    Or, one might expect that 20% of the active users make 80% of the posts about how many active users there are. (the "80:20" Rule, e.g. 80% of the work is done by 20% of the people)

    About 33% of the posts in this thread, started in 2010, have occurred since 26 April. 2016, suggesting an increase in the number of people interested in talking about the number of people.

    2007 is the earliest year for which April stats are available within this software.

    But, these statistics couldn't be "sworn in" either. They tell the truth, and nothing but the truth, but not the whole truth.

    What constitutes a "login"? I work off several computers and sometimes I find that one may be logged out of the forum but another has been left logged on. Do I get double and triple credit for being logged on with two desktop computers and my iPhone?

    The statistics functions available to admins actually uses the term "user activity," which I take to mean logins. So, you probably get "extra credit" for logging in from multiple devices, Brian. Logging in and off several times during the day is probably counted as separate "activities" by the stats, as well.

    The software is configured to log off users after a certain period of inactivity, an hour or so, IIRC. But that seems inconsistent, as some stay logged in for long periods. I haven't tried to research the reason for the inconsistencies.
